German Space Agency Funds Study on Uses of Sierra Nevada’s Dream Chaser | Parabolic Arc

German Space Agency Funds Study on Uses of Sierra Nevada’s Dream Chaser | Parabolic Arc | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

BREMEN, Germany (OHB System PR) — OHB System AG and the Space Administration of the German Aerospace Center (DLR) signed an agreement providing for the use of funding from the national space program to finance a study to explore possible uses of the U.S. spacecraft Dream Chaser® developed and owned by U.S. company Sierra Nevada Corporation (SNC).

 

Named DC4EU (Dream Chaser for European Utilization), the project is to explore ways in which the Dream Chaser®can be used to cover German and European requirements for the transportation of payloads and astronauts to the International Space Station (ISS) and for deployment as a manned or unmanned space vehicle allowing German and European scientists to conduct research under weightless conditions over extended periods of time.  Given the capability which the Dream Chaser® has for reaching orbits at a substantially greater altitude than the ISS, the study will determine the extent to which it is able to supply satellites or remove decommissioned satellites from their orbits.

It's OK to think about asking for insight from your prospective audience in more than one channel - Its a great way to not only have you solution fit and market product fit questions answered you may learn a bit more about where your prospective tribe is actually hanging out!

Introducing Design Thinking to Elementary Learners

Introducing Design Thinking to Elementary Learners | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it
Design thinking is an approach to learning that includes considering real-world problems, research, analysis, conceiving original ideas, lots of experimentation, and sometimes building things by hand. The projects teach students how to make a stable product, use tools, think about the needs of another, solve challenges, overcome setbacks and stay motivated on a long-term problem.…

Digital dawn: open online learning is just beginning

Digital dawn: open online learning is just beginning | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

In contrast to traditional higher education, which closes learning off from the world, open learning is transparent and accessible to anyone with internet access. Such openness could do a lot to improve standards at universities whose business models are driven by bums on seats, rather than mastery of a given subject. It might also lift the morale of academia. Academics who are in control of what they teach, and who teach students who seek them out, may regain their professional freedom. Around 7,000 online students recently earned the first certificates awarded by MIT and Harvard through their Edx partnership. That’s more than twice the number of degrees that MIT awarded at this year’s commencement. Another 147,596 observers signed up to marvel at what an MIT course is really like. Substantially greater numbers are expected for the spring course offerings. Their first MIT course, Circuits and Electronics, was tough. University level maths and physics were prerequisites, and the exam would give many nosebleeds.
